    I don't care about how big I am just as long as I'm strong. What good is it having size if you don't have strength.

    once i get past a certain point size wise, ill be with you. right now, i really would take 10 lbs of added muscle with no strength gain than a 15% increase to all my lifts with no size gain.

    I can get to incredible levels of strength without gaining size and I have a harder time putting on size but thankfully I don't want to.

    That's life when you are a giant in a forum of midgets.

    Strength is #1 in my book. I don't care how I look.

    It's like Christian Thibadaeu said: "Train for power, everything else is just gay porn."


    GFH motherfuckers.

    if your 180 benching 500 and im 240 benching 300 im still gonna bitch slap you right off the planet. You think otherwise then find someone alot bigger then you but weaker in the gym and start a wrestling match with him. And saying what you said is just an excuse, cause you cant get big you just say "I would rather be strong" Well 99% of the time its not one without the other so you must still be weak.

    really tize, my training partner is 179 right now at 5% and deaded 405 for 7 last night then followed it with 315 BB rows and weighted pullups with a 45. Hes a pretty weak BB"er :rolleyes:

    Point is hes doing his first show this year, hes an average joe in my world, hes not a genetic god yet he will out lift 99% on here easily

    me :rofl: I use 300 for behind the head presses for 6-8, I wasnt using me as an example. I would make a better powerlifter then BB'er to be honest. Just no one around here thats any good to teach me.
